Individual Volunteer Opportunities

At AWWA,  we continue to place a high value on volunteerism as a culture. Volunteers have played a significant role in each of our milestones by contributing time, skills, enthusiasm and passion in all that they do.  We continue to recognise the valuable role that our volunteers contribute to the wellbeing of our beneficiaries. 

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the guidelines from the relevant ministries, AWWA has embarked on virtual and off-site volunteering activities to find new ways to engage with our beneficiaries during this time. Face to face volunteering will resume when the situation improves.

We welcome you to join us in making a meaningful impact to our beneficiaries.
